Hi--
I’m casting two actors for a MAPS advanced diploma comedy “Séyoncè” shooting from the 12-16 of August.


Synopsis

Shortly after the death of Beyoncè Knowles, a group of teenagers lead a seance to contact her from beyond the grave. After accidentally summoning the devil instead, they group vie with each other in order to become the new Antichrist—better known as “Destiny’s Child”

Characters

SIV (17) is from a wealthy home, she is the daughter of immigrant parents that hold high level positions that demand them to be away from home. She spent much of her life as a latchkey kid. She loves her friends more than anything (besides Beyonce`) despite the fact that they often walk all over her.

She is shy and will often shrink inside herself to avoid conflict, but she can take control when pushed to her limit. She needs to be able to play her emotions very subtlety because she spends a lot of time reacting to the absurdities of her friends.

Female
Age Range: 18-25
Preferably Indian/Arabic/Middle-Eastern heritage but not required

HENRY (no age) is the being summoned by the ceremony. His intention is to cause chaos and sow dissent among the group. He is quite physical in his comedy.
He is similar to the kids he is terrorising because he really just wants to impress his father—it just so happens that his father is evil. He is quite witty and speaks quickly and unnaturally. It will require a strong line memory and some improv and physical comedy skills. Henry will also receive prosthetic horns.

The short is unpaid as it's a student production, it will be screened at the Mercury Cinema and submitted to festivals prior to being released on YouTube.
